Hello Helen, The Chauncy ( no "e") Abbott name gets confusing as we are up to 6 of them now. The Chauncy born 1815 was the first one. His son Chauncy 2 (he died in 1918) was my grandfather. He had 2 sons by his first wide, Frances Middleton Goldsmith Samuels; by his second wife Caroline Antoinette Woods he had my father, Morris Woods Abbott.
I am William Woodruff Abbott and have as much information on our family as anyone. I would be glad to correspond with you and learn just where you fit in. To save time you can reach me on email may as: firstname.lastname@example.org
. I currently live in PA but was born in CT about 20 miles from Norwalk where George Abbott lived.
